Same same but different (and a giveaway!)

Notice anything different about my little space in blogland?  Yup I finally decided it was time for a revamp and as I'm not a master in the art of html I got some help from the fabulous Happy of Happy loves Rosie fame. She worked her magic and hey presto I now have a blog design that I love and is very much 'me' :o)

So what better excuse is there to have a giveaway to thank you all for being so fabulous, hoorah!

  Up for grabs is this little random bundle of goodies which I put together so there is something to appeal to each of you (hopefully!)  So here's the loot:

For the vintage book lovers there is a copy of Enid Blytons 'Chimney Corner Stories' along with a wooden crafty bookmark:

For the vintage tea towel lovers we have a rather charming little red number:

And I know there are some of you lovelies partial to a bit of Cath Kidston, to nail varnish and to vintage buttons:

To top it off is a flower hair band (no rockabilly chick would be without a bit of hair flowerage) and a rather pretty but in no way vintage bracelet:

So that's the goodies and here's what you have to do.

For one entry be a follower and leave a comment telling me what one item you cant live without.
An extra entry if you blog about this giveaway or add my button to your sidebar (please comment again to let me know).
Plus extra entry if you follow me on Twitter (loves_elvis) or tweet about this giveaway :o)

The giveaway will close on the 2nd October and the winner will be announced shortly after.

Good luck to everyone who enters.


  1. This new design is really amazing cool! Looove it!

  2. Hello! Vix said we must visit you so I obliged! Love your blog so far and what a lovely new design it has! I'd love to enter your giveaway if allowed please, I'm now following! What can I not live without? Hmmmm, I guess that would be a book! Life would be miserable without a book!

  3. Cool blog design - really cracking Scarlett.

    I didn't even have to think about what item I can't live without - that would be my Macbook. It's an extension of my arm. :)

  4. What a fabulous makeover, Scarlett! You're a proper rockabilly blog now what with the sexy chick and it!
    I can't live without that tea towel. God, that doesn't make me sound very rock'n'roll does it? I promise to only use it when I've got a JD and coke on the go and a pair of killer heels. xxx

  5. This new design is so very 'you' - I think it's excellent!
    The one item I can't live without, has to be my phone.

  6. I love the new blog design, looks amazing. Makes me dying to re vamp mine but I am useless with HTML!
    Please can I enter? The one thing I can't live without is my Iphone. I went on holiday and took a rubbish nokia and felt a bit lost. Makes me relaise how much a rely on it!

  7. I love the new design its great. The one thing I couldn't live with out would be knitting, I can't be found without!!!

  8. oooh another giveaway amor, I love the buttons and polish with hair flowers. OMG! I love your new rocking design. wonder is she can do me a Morrissey one.

  9. Hi Scarlett,

    I have added your button to my sidebar and am now following you on twitter!

    The one item I couldn't live without? Now that's a hard one - I think it would have to be a camera - I need to document the things I do and it gives me great joy to look back over pictures and reminisce (even if the photos are awful!)


  10. Love your makeover Scarlett. I think the vintage buttons are nice to be used on some of my hats and other little things I have here. The bow would look very nice on a hat I have also. I'm a follower! Hugs!

  11. All of those items are awesome!!

    I couldn't live without my car! I am always rushing around, to work, to drop my youngest to school, to get some for the nicer things like weekend breaks, visiting family and for day trips out!

    I am going to try to link up to it on my blog - will let you know if I manage it (with my daughters help!!)

  12. Your new blog makeover is brilliant! It's so rockabilly and cute but most importantly it's so very you!

    I am drooling over these lovelies in your giveaway, especially the Cath Kidson soaps, hair flower and the Chimney Corner stories which would be perfect for my new fireplace! xxx

  13. Wow girlie, loving the new look!

  15. Hi Scarlett, loving the revamp.

    One item I couldn't live without would probably be my ipod touch. Mainly for the music (I lost all our music on the computer when the hard drive died) but also for sneaky peaks of my favourite blogs (yours very much included in that). xxx

  24. Your new blog look is on!

    It is sad but I can't live without my mobile phone...well I manage if I have to...but I am so used to having it.

  38. Such a great present! I think I will say the one item I can't live without (although I have ;)) is a coffee maker! There is just something so soothing and homy about being able to turn on the machine and while you're doing your morning things the coffee just gets ready on its own. :)


  39. Been a follower for a little while now :)

    The one thing I couldn't live without would have to be my book(s), if I couldn't read ever again then I wouldn't know what to do with myself!!

    Loving the new blog design, tres jolies.
